Acoustic doors create better spaces and privacy by giving each room the quiet to create your desired atmosphere and environment. Acoustics are measured in decibels; loud speech can read around 60 decibels, a vacuum cleaner can hit 70 decibels and a rock band
would be over 110 decibels.
Most manufacturers sell doors with a low acoustic rating of around 29 decibels. At SWD, our Lorient acoustic seals and drop-down seals have achieved soundproofing of up to 43 decibels. An acoustic rating of this level would make loud speech in the next room
muffled & incomprehensible.
Our flush contemporary doors are able to achieve the best ratings in soundproofing, and, fit in seamlessly to the wall for an unbeatably modern and stylish look. We have used these sleek designs in a recent project based in Dubai where the doors were 60mm thick and had rebates in both the door and frame, three acoustic seals and two drop down seals. These SWD state-of-the-art doors achieved an excellent acoustic rating of 43 decibels.
